DID YOU

PLAN FOR THIS?

Student Life 2020


2


INTRODUCTION No one could have planned for the crises we’re facing in 2020. Residence life and housing professionals work hard to adapt their programs within changing contexts to give their students the best experience no matter what the situation. A successful housing master plan is guided by an understanding of how on-campus housing supports the mission of the institution, and provides flexibility to respond to a range of predictable and unpredictable scenarios. 3


HOUSING DRIVERS We use an analytical methodology to understand the existing and future needs for student housing—both on campuses and in surrounding communities. Analysis falls into several key drivers, including but not limited to: unit mix, location, market, program, condition, and dining. An assessment of existing conditions using these drivers brings specific features into focus, establishes criteria that drive the bigger picture, and helps make informed and culture-specific recommendations. 4


UNIT MIX

PROGRAM

How well does the unit mix align with the student population housed on campus?

Are there adequate outside the unit spaces in each hall to support thriving communities?

LOCATION

CONDITION

Are residence halls optimally located to support residence life strategic goals?

What is the tipping point for reinvestment versus replacement for each residence hall?

MARKET

DINING

Are there changes in enrollment, demographics, affordability, and off campus competition that would influence on campus housing decisions?

How will changes in student housing inventory and unit mix affect student dining demand and existing capacity? 5


PROJECTS The projects on the following pages address these drivers to create a vision for student life that aligns the physical housing environment with each institution’s residence life mission and goals, in addition to meeting broader strategic initiatives.

A main campus corridor will be made more vibrant as outdated beds are replaced. A strong off-campus market for student apartments adjacent to the campus encouraged the university to focus on first- and second-year housing. Three existing residence halls are beyond their useful life and not candidates for reinvestment due to inherent accessibility issues and not achieving the reasonable capacity of the site. Two new dining facilities are planned at either end of a main campus corridor to serve increased residential density.

Demand for traditional units by cost-conscious returning students drove the need for more affordable housing at the core of campus. First-year students should be closer to the campus core than the more distant block-leased apartments. Responding to market demand for traditional units from first-year and returning upper-division students, the plan recommends major investment in affordable new housing in the core of campus. The plan recommends the replacement of a residence hall due to its condition and inefficient use of an important site. Existing dining facilities operate at maximum capacity, and the university is considering alternative dining delivery models to address peak demand.

Inventory shortages left first-year students living in apartments and semi-suite units all over campus, driving the need for more first-year housing in the campus core. The plan proposes new first-year housing in the core campus and proposes additional amenities. Very little on-campus housing exists for upper-division students. The plan identifies neighborhoods where additional beds could be located. A ranking assessment of every hall type was performed to measure the quality of the outside the unit spaces. The plan proposes to modernize older inventory to be more functional and competitive.

To reinvent the first-year experience, the plan proposed consolidating first-year students in a village at the core of campus. For the village to meet the expectations of students, amenity spaces are provided in each of the new firstyear residence halls including a teaching kitchen and a yoga studio. Three existing residence hall wings initially slated for demolition were instead relocated and now house upper-division students in traditional single units as three independent residence halls. A recently completed, conveniently located central dining facility at the core of campus replaced several dispersed operations.
